Sojourner's Place

separation of church and state still constitutional?  

Posted by SjP in ,

Oh my! I don't know about you - but right now I'm so mad I could just scream! What ever happened to the separation of church and state? Why is it necessary for Barack to continuously denounce the teachings, preachings, and ideals of Black religious leaders? Why do the rules always change for us? I am just so tired of the hypocrisy that is America?

And was Rev. Wright lying? Did Hilary get a gender and race change? Did she grow up as anything other than a white, middle-class, privileged white girl in suburbia? Does she know anything about growing up Black in America? All of this just sickens me and makes me mad as hell! There are those who are so afraid that Barack will win not only the Democratic nomination for President but the election itself that they will stop at nothing to stop his momentum! Its not just the Republicans - its also Democrats, as well. Makes you wonder if Carl Rove is on Team Clinton's payroll.

Anyway - here are just a few comments or views of "renowned spiritual leaders" I found with a simple google search. Racist? Well, if it walks like a duck, looks liked a duck, and QUACKS like a duck - then guess what? Its a damn duck!

Jerry Falwell:
"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."

"God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve."

Blamed civil libertarians, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.

"God gave us what we deserved".

"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"

"AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

"The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country."

Opposed releasing Nelson Mandela from jail and said that the African National Congress was a communist front organisation that needed to be confronted by Christian people.

Said the Antichrist is probably alive today and is a male Jew, and that the second coming of Christ probably will be within 10 years. Falwell later said his comments were not anti-Semitic. "I hope she's the candidate, because nothing will energize my (constituency) like Hillary Clinton," Falwell said.

"If Lucifer ran, he wouldn't." Pat Robertson: Agreed with Falwell for the 9/11 terrorist attack. Called for the assassination of Venezuelan President, Hugo Sanchez.

John Hagee:

"The Roman Catholic Church ,which was supposed to carry the light of the gospel, plunged the world into the dark ages."

"When Hitler signed a treaty with the Vatican in Rome, he said "I am only continuing the work of the Catholic Church." ...I've included a comparison of the historical record of church policy and Nazi policy. "

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner('s Place) ain't got nothing more to say.
